Dear All,

 

My beloved Citroën Xantia's going up for sale, for no other reason than I've bought a Subaru (stop laughing!) and I haven't the space to park both!

 

So, here goes:

 

1994 ("M" reg), 2 litre automatic 8 valve engine, with 202700 miles on the clock. M.O.T. to March 2018, 4 good Michelin tyres (the spare's also a Michelin, but more worn than those on the car!) it's white, with electric windows, central locking, electric sunroof which ALL work! (No, they REALLY do!) Meticulously serviced for the last 8 years by me, with oil & filter changes every 5,000 miles and plugs and air filters changed every 10,000 miles. A.T.F. drained from the auto box every 5,000 miles & topped up again, so over time the A.T.F. is completely changed. Cam belt done in 2015, since when the car's about 20,000 miles. Fitted with a JVC D.A.B. radio and yellow headlamp bulbs (which can be removed, if requested!) New alternator, battery and fan belt in 2104.

 

The bodywork is in good, but not excellent order. There are a few rust spots, but nothing in anyway critical. It has a tow-hitch, with all the wiring and it all works.

 

£400 would secure this car to your driveway. It could be adjusted in a downwards direction, subject to the removal of the radio-it IS a nice one! I DON'T want to E-Bay this, as my life is worth more, so I offer it to the Autoshite community first. Please email me if you have any questions on: andyrooen5 [at] aol [dot] com

 

The car's In Barnet and viewing is welcome! It's done about a dozen trips to France and has never missed a beat!

I love how someone posted the other day about how annoyed they were that there were no Xantias for sale. There have been loads on here this week! Sounds a nice spec.

In answer to an earlier question the "green stuff" was checked last November (2016) when the 4 suspension spheres were changed. The 2 auxiliary spheres were deemed to be serviceable. The work was carried out by DS Workshop, of Potters Bar, well known DS and hydro-pneumatic Citroën specialists.

That's a good one for the money. I liked the 2.0 8v I had in a 405, nice cruiser.

Now sold. Placed on the Evil Bay in the end. Surprisingly a really nice guy came up from Tottenham to take a look on Friday evening and bought it! £250 changed hands and I shed a tear! Sorry, but one becomes attached to certain cars, and this is one of them. I feel it's gone to a good home anyway! By the way, Subarus "like a drink" don't they! Are they know for their thirst of the unleaded wine?

In a word yes, I did about 1500 miles in my Impreza (with turbo) and averaged 18.7mpg.

 

Non-turbo ones may do slightly better, as may people with a lighter right foot, or who do more motorway/long distance stuff or who don't blat around going BWWWAAAARRRRRRPPP-TSSSCH like a big child.

Surely a big part of the appeal of a Subaru is the sound of the flat 4 and bwarp ptsch noises?

Well yes exactly, but at 60 quid or so for a tank of V-power/Tesco 99 that lasted around 180 miles, it gets a bit tiresome eventually.
